    - Excellent salary - Gigantic company with lots of international opportunities - Good for petrol heads and traditional engineering

    Cons

    - Soooooo slow (partly due to labor union) - Everything is politics - No transparency in many things - Hard to climb the ranks, lot of old managers - Toxic culture with a lot of silos

    Advice to Management

    - Fire at least 10% of management, top managers below board level should only have limited contracts for 5 years - Get middle management to give the big picture to employees - Give consequences for not reaching targets - Don't get to influenced by labor union (it is a mafia)

    Large company with many career possibilities Well-respected and known company name Good place to create a network Good work-life balance, good salaries

    Cons

    Decision are taken not due to content reasons or necessity, but purely out of political reasons Save your back attitude overtakes taking any risks Lacks behind in digitalization efforts Hard to drive any changes Learning curve from errors is less steep than at many other places

    Advice to Management

    Break up the clusters of people just promoting themselves Create an atmosphere where creating value comes first Motivate managers to take more risks and decisions (even if it means that an error can happen)
